Watching my students making progress week to week. Assisting them with all things drum related especially the questions that arise during the lesson.
Rob has an outstanding warm and caring character which makes it very pleasant to work with him. As a teacher, he adopts to the indivuidual needs of the student and always finds the right material to stay engaged. He never looses patience and humour and remains always focused on the success of the student. Our son started playing drums with Rob at the age of five and years later, he still loves it .
Rob is energetic and enthusiastic which keeps our 8 year-old on track. He also provides sheet music for her to practice between lessons. Always on time and professional. I also take lessons while he's here (42 year-old male).
Lessons are designed to meet your musical needs. Learning note values, rhythms, dynamics, technique, independence, musical styles, drum charts & songs.
